republicans are calling on the obama administration to declare the 19-year-old suspect an enemy combatant subject to the loss of four, so intelligence officials can continue to interrogate him for as long as they deem necessary. authorities captured him in watertown, mass. friday evening. they are invoking the public .afety exception he remains hospitalized under sedation and remains unclear what kind of communication they are able to have him at the moment. judy is on the phone from north carolina, independent line. good morning, and welcome to the program. caller: thank you. my thought on the issue is that we are a large nation, an all- inclusive nation, and i believe that the boy scouts is a private organization and has the right to determine who their membership is. i believe there should be a third organization that some of the gay-rights people should put into place, and that would be the rainbow scouts. then they can put all the lbb tea in anything they wanted, -- lgbt. republican senator tim scott delivering the republican response and focusing on the events of the past week, incl
. president obama also noted the time at the white house as did traders on the floor of the new york stock exchange. nbc news justice correspondent pete williams has the very latest. >> at 2:38 last monday afternoon, 11 minutes before the first bomb goes off the fbi says, a surveillance camera catches dzhokhar tsarnaev and tamerlan tsarnaev walking towards the finish line with backpacks, a second and crucial piece of video, the fbi says, comes from a surveillance camera mounted on this restaurant. at 2:42, court documents say the still unreleased video shows dzhokhar tsarnaev with a backpack walked towards the scene of a second bombing. at 2:45, he slips his backpack off. still photos show the backpack on the ground at his feet. when the first bomb goes off, the fbi says, the video shows the crowd looking towards the finish line in alarm. but the fbi says tsarnaev virtually alone among the individuals in front of the strauvent appears calm. he walks away, it says, without his backpack, and ten seconds later, the second bomb goes off in the spot where he left the backpack. the fbi says both
disbrea disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out enemy combatant status for this suspect at this time. >> we are moving up to the boat he was actually laying down on the side of the boat, one leg out, one hand out. as we got closer, he sat back up. >> he just sat up. he's moving, flailing about, quite a bit of movement. >> the suspect's in custody. >> tonight, dzhokhar tsarnaev goes to court at his hospital bedside. and there is more. the magistrate says he is lucid. adam housley is live in boston with the latest. adam? >> reporter: yeah, gret a. in fact, in the hospital behind me, there is significant security, downstairs and throughout the hospital. the u.s. marshal service has taken over the security situation of him specifically. they have marshalls by his room, in the hallway, all standard procedure when the macials take control. before that, it was local law enforcement and the fbi. so the marshalls will be in charge of him, until he is well enough to leave here. once that happen, he will fly out via helicopter, like whitey bowlser did. they feel li

the 60 votes which president obama called shameful. joining me now is democratic senator richard blumenthal from connecticut. max baucus of montana will not run for reelection and he is one who voted against the measure. a liberal group had vowed to target him and others, mark prior of arkansas who voted against the measure. all face reelection in 2014. what do you think of the decision of baucus not to rerun? >> a surprise and a loss to the senate. he is a key figure in tax reform as well as a variety of other measures and extraordinary distinguished career and a decision probably based on family decision and larger career goals and the desire to focus on areas like taxes and other issues. >> as a connecticut senator does that anger you knowing he could have voted yes knowing ahead oft that vote that he was probably not running for reelection and could have helped effort what would have been something, a major positive reform for gun measures? >> what frustrates, disappoints and angers me is the fact that we had 55 votes in the united states senate as well as 90% of the american
. relieved citizens cheered in the streets. amazing sight. president obama appeared in the white house briefing room shortly after 10:00 p.m. to say thank goodness its over. certainly capturing the mood not only here in watertown but across this region. matt and savannah, back to you. >> where does this investigation go from here? nbc's justice correspondent pete williams has been working this story tirelessly around the clock. pete, good morning to you. >> matt, good morning. the justice department says it intends to put dzhokhar tsarnaev on trial in a regular civilian court using the rules that apply in any criminal trial and that's renewing a debate about how to try terrorists on american soil. as soon as he is physically ready, dzhokhar tsarnaev will be subjected to questioning by federal authorities but in the beginning he will not be given the usual miranda warning about the right to remain silent. instead, the government will invoke a rule that allows questioning a suspect without giving advice of rights. >> there is a public safety exemption in cases of national security and po
. i hope the obama administration will allow us that option that exists in our law. they have a very bad track record here. >> reporter: fox news is told investigators are probing a potential link to a islamist group as first reported on fox over the weekend. they were responsible for the attack on moscow airport. in response the group issued a statement saying their disagreement is with russia. they did not deny knowing the brothers. also according to one source who has reviewed that, they were undercut in their claims trying to deny any connection because they pointed the finger as russia as being responsible for these bombings which of course there is no evidence to support that, jon. jon: catherine herridge, lots of tangled leads to unravel here. catherine, thank you. >> reporter: you're welcome. jenna: for more on this now we'll bring in our next guest, chris voss, retired fbi special agent and hostage negotiator and manager of insight security. we talked you to last few times in. great to have you back on the program. >> thank you, jenna. jenna: catherine is reporting on there
magazine unleased its 100 most influential people list of all time and president obama is on for the fourth time mischel obama, and kim junk un lindsey vonn make the list but her boyfriend, tiger woods did not. chris christie is on that too by the way. >> bill: all right. thank you, dan. what an extraordinary weekend. the lockdown was announced during the show, and we were sure that by the end of the show, that would have him, right? because they had that horrible crime scene thursday night when they thought they had robbed the 7-eleven. it turned out they didn't rob the 7-eleven but they were there at the time. and then they shot and killed senselessly it seems this officer. they hijack the car take off with this guy, go from atm to atm, big up $800, thrown him out of the car. he very cleverly -- i give him credit for doing it appropriately -- left his cell phone in the car so the police were able to track his car to watertown, one brother is killed, and the other brother goes on the lam. and that's when thigh lockdown the city. it went on and on
court and the statement taken from him cannot be used against him in that trial. >> while the obama administration has agreed to delay a reading of his miranda rights under a public safety exemption, secretary of defense chuck hagel has not seen evidence to link the bombings to terror groups. scrutiny turns to the fbi who reportedly questioned the older brother tamerlan in 2011 at the request of a foreign government. this is so interesting. of russia. the fbi told the a.p. despite interviewing him and relatives they did not find any activity. the agency dropped the ball. richard, i wonder if there is going to be a lot of questions and maybe even hearings out of this or what comes to mind just knowing those basic facts? >> there probably will be hearings of the fbi whether it learned more or could have done more. critics say that is monday morning quarterbacking. it ought to be about what we were talking about, what can we do to prevent or identify young people who are radicalized and how did we respond and how what did we learn about lockdowns. as the military would say it ought not
, they make everything worth it. >> and president obama keeps saying we will finish the race. >>> thank you for starting your morning with us. >> we have so much more to come all morning here on "cnn saturday morning," and our next hour begins right now. >>> good morning, everybody. i am john vermin. >> and i am christine romans. we would like to welcome our viewers. >> this is a special edition of "cnn saturday morning" live from boston. the dramatic end to this historic, unprecedented manhunt. >> it shut down boston and the surrounding suburbs, this siege, really. listen to what happened with the news that the suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev was in custody. >> and residents waving middle eastern flags, and it ordeal ended with this shoot-out last night. >> police are not saying right now whether dzhokhar was not in last night's gun shoot-out, but we know he was wounded in the thursday shoot-out with police that killed his brother. >> this shows the bloody teen on a boat where he likely had been hiding for hours. the boat's owner says he saw smeared blood and pulled back a tarp, a tarp that the
. >> let's be honest. you worked at the department of homeland security under president obama. the u.s. is often skeptical when the russians talk about chechen islamic terrorism because they think the russians are trying to bring the u.s. into a conflict that the u.s. does not play a role in. the fbi looking into the older brother is a concerning turn of events. we now know that the fbi had been alert bid the russians that this young man was an extremist, in their view, the older brother. what do you think is going on right now at the fbi? >> i think they are reviewing that investigation and who did it. i tend to be more cautious in terms of what happened and whether we would know things now. in particular because radicalization is really hard to say there's a moment in time when this happened and we could have stopped it it then. i've been through enough both disasters and all sorts of havoc in my life that looking back it's easier than in the moment. so the question is how many chechens did the fbi interview. if there were thousands, then it would be they were doing a sweep. if it
about. ,s president barack obama said they have to find out why two young men who came to this country 10 years ago, who studied here and seem to be part of the fabric of society then suddenly decided to do what they did. who perhaps radicalize them, who guided them? was there someone dictating what they do? ity people leave -- believe is too disillusioned people -- two disillusioned young man working on their own. they will not get a chance to speak to him for the next few days at least. >> thank you. david has a bit more. ,his is the capital of dagestan where the parents of the suspect lived. >> the brothers did spend four months here, before the family moved to the u.s. the mother joint the father of the two brothers -- joined the father of the two brothers, saying they were set up and .ramed trad >> he was controlled by the fbi. my sons were innocent. they knew what he was doing and what sites on the internet he was going. they used to, talk to me. they said they are afraid of him. how could this happen? they were looking at every step of him. this is not true. my two sons are inno
putin spoke with president obama last night and the two leaders are discussing the importance of working more closely together on counterterrorism in the future. the fbi as you heard said after interviewing tamerlan at russia's request in 2011, they sought and failed to get more information from russia's intelligence and state security agencies, so a lot of questions still to answer. did these brothers join existing separate chechen factions? if so, why weren't they attack ing russian targets? why did they go after their new homeland, the u.s.? this is a big mystery. tonight the president is commending his federal officials, also state and local officials, but they are still asking why did someone who was already in the fbi's database get through the cracks. lester? >> all right, andrea mitchell, thank you. >>> the police department of watertown where this all ended is only about 60 officers strong and over the last two days, it was tested in ways that even the biggest police forces will rarely or ever experience. this afternoon, i spoke with watertown police chief ed devoe about the lar
with somebody like obama bin laden, it would be me and him and a baseball bat. if i want to be macho, i challenge you to an arm wrestling contest. i am telling you how i feel. 100 times over, i will give you the same answer. >> if we could keep this as simple as possible, quite difficult currently. this will change everything if you start to torture american citizens for committing domestic crimes inside america. am i wrong? >> you are not wrong. im as red blooded american as anybody and i go back to thomas jefferson who wanted to change the fifth amendment, which has complicated language about self-incrimination. he wanted an outright vote against torture under all circumstances. torture is unconstitutional, illegal, in violation of every international treaty. should never under any circumstances be used. where i agree with him and said it would be used if we had a ticking bomb terrorist case. if we actually had a situation where the choice was between letting the bomb go off and killing thousands of people or torturing somebody, every president what allow, even this president, would n
the twin bombings and the shut down during the manhunt. at the white house president obama said boston's residents and police acted with resolve and bravery. >> because of their determined efforts we've closed an important chapter in this tragedy. >> it is not clear when authorities will be able to interrogate tsarnaev. police say he is in serious condition and not communicating. >> the investigators continue their search for answers. they want to know w these two brothersldhoific terrorist act f they had any help. back to you. >> thanks. local and federal investigators are now still trying to determine whether the two brothers had any help in their bombing plot. more information is coming out about those two brothers. a cousin says each brother was very different. the younger a smart and sweet kid, the older got into trouble. that cousin said he warned 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev that his older brother was a bad influence. >> from russia, the suspect's father insists his sons are innocent. he called his younger son a true angle studying medicine. >> someone framed them. i don't kn
the police announced the capture. president obama then addressed the nation. >> boston police and state police and local police across the commonwealth of massachusetts responded with professionalism, and bravery over five long days. and tonight, because of their determined efforts, we've closed an important chapter in this tragedy. >> now, the other suspect that's dzhokhar's older brother, 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev was killed friday during a confrontation with police. authorities in boston suspended all mass transit friday and warned roughly 1 million people to stay indoors as the hunt for the remaining suspect played out. the brothers are the suspects in monday's marathon -- boston rather marathon bombings that killed three people and injured more than 180 others. the men are also suspected of killing an m.i.t. police officer while sitting in his vehicle friday night. let's go to watertown. nbc's luke russert is outside the hospital where the suspect is right now. good morning to you. take us through exactly how this 19-year-old suspect was caught? what are the details you've lear
to guantanamo. in any case the obama administration has shown absolutely no interest in that idea and every indication is that he will be tried as a criminal defendant in an american criminal courtroom. >> lindsey graham who himself is a military attorney, has spent 30 years in the u.s. air force, he insists he wants tsarnaev to be tried in american civilian court, but that didn't preclude at least for now naming him an enemy combatant to try to question him to see if there are other bombs out there, other individuals who may be involved. sort of this imminent threat notion. is he on sound legal ground, lindsey graham, when he says, yes, he'll go before a civil trial, but at least for now name him an enemy combatant so he can be questioned? >> well, the obama administration has established a policy of a so-called public safety exception to the miranda rule where for some period of time, it's not entirely clear how long, a suspect can be questioned without miranda warnings and that apparently is what's happening here. again, it's complicated somewhat by the fact that we didn't know exactly w

with a live briefing one starts. dagen: president obama briefed this morning. we are looking at this live breast priest -- press briefing- press briefing. meantime in washington president obama was briefed this morning on the boston investigation. the man had. we go to rich jensen at the white house with the latest. >> reporter: a very fluid situation. the national security staff convening about an hour-long briefing this morning that ended -t about -- probably an hour ago. we were supposed to get a briefing in new from the press secretary, just a regular is scheduled briefing, the daily briefing. that has been pushed off, postponed to a time to be determined. we are learning now also comes from capitol hill. his reporting, is senior source on capitol hill was brief but a national data terrorism center saying that police believed dzhokhar tsarnaev is still in the boston area and it is important they get all the time and do so live because they want to find out if this is something broader. there is another person involved those sources saying it is hard to believe that these two men opera
's going on at 1600 pennsylvania avenue. >> that's right, alex. president obama had a sweeping meeting in the situation room earlier today for about an hour with his entire national security team. updated and briefed on the evolving situation in boston. i can tell you that the white house is being very careful and very cautious in its reactions. because this is a developing story. i can also tell you that as of this hour, secretary john kerry, defense secretary chuck hagel and c.i.a. director john brennan are here for a previously scheduled meeting with the national security adviser. that is under way right now. that doesn't involve the president. will they discuss boston? that is certainly a high possibility giving the evolving events of the day. president obama has been briefed regularly throughout the day. and overnight. as the situation was developing. of course we have heard from the president, multiple times this week on monday. again on tuesday, we heard from him at that interfaith service yesterday in boston. will we hear from him again today? we don't know at this point. the w
of events with president obama saying that the suspect chose the wrong person this second person. the suspect they finally know, that this tragic event has come to an end. with the investigation will be going on and catherine has information? >> right now, in light of this authorities are surprised because he seemed casual leading up to the boston marathon classmates from the university of massachusetts has come forward. that he was at a party wednesday night the two nights after the bombing. and if they say that they say that his college card indicates that he was on campus and working out before going out with soccer france. the 19 year- old dzhokar tsarnaev was at a party, looking for relaxed which again is a very strange contradiction. with what we are hearing. and the reality of how this has worked. >> is strange to hear the conflicting descriptions. they are pointing that out and the casual nature. and this entire episode is something that will be looking for. people that do analysis profiles of these people there will try to figure out. exactly these lone wolf a scenario.
you think, why you think this and they say they never got a response. >> the obama administration has okayed the suspension of the suspect's miranda rights. is that a temporary suspension? >> reporter: yes, by law it is. it's called the public safety exception to the miranda rule. normally you have to tell someone they have a right to remain silent and if you don't, then you can't use anything they tell you in court. so that's why the miranda warning is given. but there is an exception. you don't have to do it if there's a possible threat to public safety. and here obviously there's a concern about whether there are potential accomplices. investigators say they haven't found any. or other explosives. they say they haven't found any of those either but that's what they want to ask him. and this exception probably begins to expire the moment you invoke it so it's probably no good for more than a day or two but nonetheless they can do that. afterwards they'll have to give him his miranda warning and say whether he'll continue to answer questions. the justice department says even in very

pieces, we won't be able to answer some of those questions. >> hagel also said the obama administration doesn't have enough information yet to decide whether the surviving 19-year-old tsarnaev brother should be sent to the guantanamo bay prison for terror suspects. >>> we're learning much, much more about the suspects now from the russian republic of dagestan where their father now lives. now cnn can exclusively reveal alleged boston bomber tamerlan tsarnaev, the older brother, had video of a jihadist on his youtube channel. let's get to nick paton walsh now, he joins us by phone from dagestan. so nick, what do you know about this video? i just spoke with the police commissioner here in boston. he says this is a major development to him and it is going to be used in the investigation. >> what we know -- a youtube channel which tamerlan tsarnaev put up, had a link to and had a section called terrorists and had had a link to this man. the link was taken down but we have found the video that appeared to link to. he was a militant from azerbaijan. the better known name here is del gato. wha

with the cutbacks that we see, and unfortunately we see it also under the obama administration. we have something like 2200 osha inspectors for the entire country. if you were going to inspect every plant it would take 129 years for each plant to be inspected. that's not acceptable. >> john: is that the reason why they got away with it? i appreciate this is the defining argument of our times. are you going to have government oversight or are you going to allow the free market to take care of themselves. why do you think they were able to get away from inspections for so long. >> when we cover the facts on the ground, and we give names and faces to stories like this. this is not just an abstract story of policy, what we have to do in the media is show that when you have deregulation we're talking about the taking of lives, and that matters. and we need a media now that covers this in a regular basis the people of west, texas, are devastated. i don't see that changing unless--and it's not just republican or democrat thing. you have governor perry, a well- well-known republican governor who ran for
that comes across the border with biometric data and can't get obama care so they can work and pay taxes but never get medicaid. you're seeing him going hat in hand trying to sell his bill as even more draconian and far right. we're going to electrify the whole southern border, i suppose, or whatever it is they want. just to get them to pass something that would help the republican party because it would make them less toxic to latino voters. >> joy reid and dana milbank, who i believe was recommending not clitoridectomy, but the removal of the tongue for ann coulter. thank you very much. >> thank you, doctor. >>> as we go to break, new video just in featuring the mother of the bombing suspects, again, insistent that her sons are innocent. >> what happened is a terrible thing. but i know that my kids have nothing to do with this. i know it.

phase of the case begins. the very complex legal process. an obama administration official telling nbc news tsarnaev will not be given a miranda warning when he's physically able to be interrogated after receiving medical treatment. instead, the official says the government will invoke a legal rule known as the public safety exception. that will allow investigators to question tsarnaev without first advising him of his right to remain silent and be afforded legal counsel. president obama used his weekly address today to praise law enforcement and those involved in tracking tsarnaev down. >> americans refused to be terrorized. ultimately, that's what we'll remember from this week. that's what will remain, the stories of heroism and kindness, resolve and resilience, generosity, and love. >> authorities caught up with the suspect after a tip from a watertown resident. he was hiding in a boat parked outside a home. he is now in a boston hospital and nbc's ron allen is joining me from there. ron, with a good afternoon to you, let's get the very latest on his condition. are you getting word

between the obama administration and some of the republican -- sorry about this and what that means is the obama administration has said the criminal justice system can make this work, the criminal can handle national security risks like this person, terrorists have been prosecuted, moussaoui. this administration is committed to using the american courts there are some critics, like senator mccain, like senator graham, who say that's too big a risk, that we have too many protection, we have too many abilities on the part of these defendants not to answer questions that put all of us at risk but i don't think there's any chance the obama administration is going to change its mind and use something other than the criminal justice system for this case. >> because a lot of people are raising questions, they had apparently some explosive devices, some weapons, rifles, hand grenades, stuff that's pretty expensive. where did they get this material? where did the money come from that helped them purchase this material? that's why some of these republican senators, lawmakers, are asking for
discussion that the blind sheik, whose picture is up on the screen now, might be freed by the obama administration, that president morsi in egypt that seemed to infuriate you some what and you wrote an article, "will obama free the blind sheik?" now if you think about this, in this case, if the death penalty is not sought, are you concerned that some president down the road could ignore the issue of a life sentence imposed by a federal judge and just send the terrorist off somewhere? >> on this guy, tsarnaev? >> right. >> no, i'm not concerned about that. he's very different from the sheik. concerned about that. a sheikh is a highly symbolic figure among muslims. he was and still is widely respected as a muslim scholar, and regarded as an authority. he's a big deal. this guy is a mutt. >> so you're not worried about that? >> no. >> finally the death penalty, if he is charged with those crimes that he clearly can be, he's eligible for the death penalty? >> absolutely. >> do you think that this >> do you think this just disat the present time -- justice department will seek it? >> i h
